Mixers and Detectors

MXP balanced mixers featuring Millitech technology are high performance broadband mixers in a very compact size. They offer low conversion loss and low noise figure over a wide range of IF and local oscillator frequencies. Series MXP covers frequencies from 26.5 to 140 GHz in seven waveguide bands.

DET detectors, utilizing Schottky barrier zero-bias diodes, provide a very economical solution for power detection over the 18 to 325 GHz range. These units are rugged, thermally stable, and small.

Designs with custom electrical or mechanical specifications are available upon request.

Balanced Mixer (MXP)

Series MXP balanced mixers featuring Millitech technology are high performance broadband mixers offered in compact and low weight configurations. The series MXP cover frequencies from 26.5 to 140 GHz in seven waveguide bands, feature LO agility (swept LO) and extremely broadband IF. MXP single-balanced mixers use GaAs Schottky Barrier Diodes and can operate with relatively low local oscillator power, generally 13 to 15 dBm. Addition product features include low conversion loss and low noise figure over a wide range of IF and local oscillator frequencies. Special designs with LO input waveguide in a higher or lower waveguide band can be provided.

General Purpose Detector (DET)

DET detectors featuring Millitech technology are designed to provide class leading sensitivity and full waveguide bandwidth performance simultaneously without external DC bias or adjustments. These detectors offer flat frequency responses over ten waveguide bands ranging from 18 to 325 GHz. Series DET detector response is linear for power levels below -10 dBm. Series DET detectors are directly compatible with typical scalar analyzers including models manufactured by Agilent and Anritsu. Designs with custom electrical or mechanical specifications are also available.
